About Us

Redefy is an organization by teenagers for teenagers seeking to empower schools and communities worldwide with the resources and information necessary to be more inclusive and actively combat discrimination and hatred. Our goal is to boldly defy stereotypes, embrace acceptance, redefine our perspectives positively, and create an active community.

Who We Are

Founded in 2013 by Ziad Ahmed, Redefy is an international, social justice 501(c)3 non-profit organization run entirely by teens. At the heart of our mission is the belief that all hate stems from ignorance and that, through conversation and education, acceptance will prevail. As an organization, we aim to address intolerance through four routes: Journalism, Resources, Campaigns, and grassroots action through our network of hundreds of Representatives and Chapters.

During our seven years of existence, we have been recognized by President Obama, MTV, PBS, Kid President, and more figures and organizations for our social justice work. If you would like to get involved in Redefy, whether as a School Representative or as a Redefy chapter leader in your country, please visit our Join Us page!
REDEFY CORP is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization. Our Federal Tax ID Number is 82-2000890.

What We Do

Journalism

With over fifty regular writers, Redefy Journalism works to empower students to call out discrimination and intolerance where they see it, share their voices against injustice, and engage their communities towards change. Publishing daily, the Journalism team isn't afraid to address controversial subjects, from the issues in our justice system to personal narratives of experiences with hate or bigotry.

Campaigns

Through both bigger yearly campaigns, such as the #BurstYourBubble Conference, or smaller more regular events, Redefy works to draw in public support for social justice initiatives. This coming year, we will host webinars and action sessions to cover a variety of themes, from the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health to the importance of BIPOC faculty in schools.

Resources

Not only does Redefy publish monthly guides for our Chapter Network to discuss, but it also shares numerous resources with action items for the general public on our social media. By engaging our followers with steps to take against injustice, Redefy is working hard to educate everyone about how they can help promote tolerance. In doing so, we hope to uplift voices around the world and empower individuals.

Network

Our Chapters are spread across the globe and, from Shanghai to Nigeria to Texas, they cover the unique issues each of their communities faces while fighting for Redefy's mission. With over one hundred Representatives fighting for justice on an individual scale, Redefy further advocates for students everywhere, helping future-leaders create guides and fight against discrimination.
